Dr Ernest Welch – Quotations

Information required to generate a quote estimate for surgery

It is difficult to generate a general quote for anaesthesia as a number of variables are included in each account. In order to attempt to obtain a reasonably accurate estimate of your anaesthetic cost we require the following information.

Please read the information on accounts here.

Notes on your anaesthetic quotation:

  • The cost of anaesthesia is time dependent
  • It is impossible to predict how long a procedure will take, this makes estimating the cost of an anaesthetic extremely difficult. An estimated quote is therefore based on the average time taken for a procedure and assumes the procedure is of average complexity.
  • If the procedure takes longer than the estimated time the cost will increase according to the duration of the procedure.
  • There are additional costs that will be incurred for modifiers such as: fractures, obesity, paediatrics (less than 1 year), elderly (over 70 years), ICU admission, pain relief techniques, blood pressure control, revision surgery and emergencies or cases not booked on routine lists.
  • If your BMI (body mass index) is greater than 35 kg/m2 you will be charged an additional 50% of the anaesthetic fee. To calculate your BMI = weight(kg)/{height (m) x height (m)}
